Questions Raised After Stabbing Suspect's Release

Collie Willard an apparent suspect in this weekends' stabbing death, was apparently supposed to be behind bars at the time of the fight.

According to the Sheriff's Department, Willard has been appealing a possession of a controlled substance charge for the last seven years. Last year that appeal was denied and a domestic violence assault charge was added. Willard was booked into the Lubbock County Jail on November 15, 2002 where he was to be held until his transfer one month later to TDC. Willard was transferred to TDC to serve a four year term. But for some reason he was released less than a month later, with 186 days credit.

Sheriff's officials are working with TDC to determine why he was released. For now, Willard is back in custody at the Lubbock County Jail. He was picked up this weekend, after his name surfaced as being a possible suspect in the stabbing death. He is being held only to finish his term owed to the county, not in connection with the stabbing.
